Mellow Jazz Vocals

Ann and Richard, with Richard on piano, sing mellow American jazz and popular standards by such greats at Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, George Shearing, Billy Barnes, Blossom Dearie, Dave Frishberg and others.  We will transport you back to those nightclub days when Bogie and Bacall were all that was cool, then toss in some newer gems, too.  Upbeat numbers, some romantic songs, smokier ballads and plenty of familiar tunes are all on our music menu.
